Lingnews.net

Bridget of the late Ilani Ilani has started a digg.com-style site for language-related news stories: Lingnews.net. I've just now posted a story, about the new RC mass tracking the original Latin phraseology more closely—weirdly, deliberately making the ceremony even more opaque. (Probably they're just eliminating stranded prepositions and split infinitives, in honor of the Latin original. Haw.) The other news items already there are much more linguistically interesting—I just wanted to contribute something as I made this announcement! Check it out!


Update: Check out caelestis' excellent series of posts on the translation's improved metrical qualities, and other qualities:

Mea Culpa
Gloria
Credo

Thanks for the publicity, and for contributing! Things are quiet now, but I'm hoping we'll get more posters soon.
